Beyond the expected

You’ll never be an astronaut now.

atlantis over canberra

John Lafferty has sent in this picture of the last space shuttle flight (and last crewed flight for the US space program of which we’ve been a part for the forseeable future) with this note:

The ISS with the Space Shuttle Atlantis attached over Canberra. This is the last flight of the Space Shuttle programme. Sad to see them go.

The large glow on the horizon is Canberra. This is a composite of three images taken this morning at 5:46am from the south of Canberra. If the weather stays clear you can see other 1min flyovers for the next few days. Look at the NASA Human Space Flight sight for details.

Got an image of Canberra you want to share with the world? Email it to .
